Preschool STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Classes for children ages 4 to 6 – consists of a 1.5-hour session, 1 day per week.
Kids BLAST OFF into the world of wonder as they use their senses to explore, design, create and experiment.
Each week students have the chance to use their curiosity to explore, discover, and experiment while using scientific methods to find out why things do what they do, move like they move, or change like they change! Both indoor and outdoor exploration makes science absolutely amazing! Science surrounds us, inside and out.
Our STEM students will love using magnifying glasses, creating chemical reactions with kitchen ingredients, exploring stored energy and so much more.
There is an exciting and powerful link between STEM and early childhood.
Research confirms that the brain is particularly receptive to learning math and logic between the ages of 1 and 4, and that early math skills are the most powerful predictors of later learning.
STEM teaches children how to solve problems and ask questions.
Our STEM time is divided into ‘Investigations’, where our teachers will guide our students to use their skills in science, technology, engineering and math to explore the world around them. STEM teaches the children how to problem solve and ask inquiry based questions.
